This is probably the first time you’re hearing about this, but on Aug. 21 there will be a total solar eclipse, the first to cross the North American continent from ocean to ocean since 1918. Or perhaps you have heard. Anyhow, Burritt on the Mountain is hosting an eclipse viewing event and encouraging attendees to bring picnics and blankets to the park’s lawn. Burritt’s Monte Sano Mountain locale offers spectacular views on a normal day, so the eclipse should be particularly rad here.
Even in her 26th floor New York corner office, Catherine Burns is surrounded by Alabama: painted magnolia leaves, a framed photo from her Alexander City youth, deer antlers, the Alabama license plate from the Toyota Corolla she drove during high school.
"Bear, we're screwed. Dylan's gone Christian," Jerry Wexler told Barry Beckett over the phone. The conversation took place in advance of Muscle Shoals recording sessions that became Bob Dylan's 1979 album "Slow Train Coming," according to Scott M. Marshall, author of new book "Bob Dylan: A Spiritual Life," who interviewed "Slow Train Coming" co-producers Wexler and Beckett before they died in 2008 and 2009 respectively.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
